Finding your style when it comes to fashion involves getting fashion items or wears that define your personality, your taste, and your vibe as the case may be.
Personal style is a necessary thing because that is one way of expressing yourself through fashion – cloths, accessories, hairstyles, shoes and so on.
If I were to describe my style, I would say simple and classy, nothing too dramatic. I like minimal colour in my choice of clothes, I love minimalist accessories; and for shoes, I subconsciously go for colours that easily blend into any choice of cloths.
Now let’s delve into some tips that can help you discover your style.
The first step to take would be to find out what you like and what you do not like. Once you are able to get that out of the way, you can now figure out the next step.
One important thing you need to do next is to take a look at your wardrobe, everything you have in there. Scan through it all, then take note of the ones you have worn repeatedly, and think of the reasons why you wore them. That is a pointer to your kind of style.
After getting a headsup on what you like, the next is to know your body type, this will help you to pick cloths that will look good on you when next you go shopping.
Then take note of your colour choices; knowing your favourite colours and colour combinations is a great step when trying to identify your style. It also aids your shopping ideas.
Another thing to do is find your inspiration. Whose fashion inspires you? You can also find styling inspiration from fashion experts on social media, style blogs or pages and so on. This would help you blend all your discoveries into a unique styling pattern.
When it comes to accessorising, find out if you are a minimalist or maximalist. As usual, looking into your jewellery box to see what you have already tells you what your style is.
A minimalist would love simple classy items when accessorising, but a maximalist would appreciate loud accessories, something that would announce your presence.
Overall, here are some choices to consider when trying to decide your style: plain or patterned, loud or calm, classy or regular, relaxed or serious, silver or gold.
